It's self-explanatory. Let's say i have a Steelix on who i gave him Life Orb and his ability is Rock Head and i use Earthquake, will the recoil damage from the Life Orb dissapear? I am just curious.

No.

Rock Head prevents recoil damage from moves like Double-Edge, but not
from use of a Life Orb, Jaboca Berry or Rowap Berry or the move
Struggle. Recoil damage is still received if Jump Kick or Hi Jump Kick
miss.
